Alexander Markov: Paganini: 24 Caprices

2006 NR

Internationally renowned violinist Alexander Markov takes the stage to play one of the most demanding scores in the violin repertory: Niccolò Paganini's 24 Caprices. Performing the piece -- as Markov does brilliantly -- requires not only exceptional technical talent but emotional intensity. Reggio Emilia, Italy, provides the setting for this memorable 1989 recital directed by Bruno Monsaingeon (who's also a concert violinist).
